  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil

  • 1 Onion, finely chopped

  • 2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon Cumin powder

  • 1 can California Garden red kidney beans, drained

  • 2 teaspoons Paprika

  • 6 tablespoons Ready-made Mexican tomato salsa

  • ½ can California Garden whole sweet corn

  • 4 tablespoons Canned chopped jalapenos

  • 8 Flour tortillas

  • 100 grams Cheddar cheese, grated

  • Sour cream to taste


Step 1

In a large pan, heat the vegetable oil and cook the onion and garlic for 2 minutes. Add California Garden red kidney beans, paprika, cumin and some water.

Step 2

Using a potato masher, break the beans down as they warm through to make a rough purée. Add Mexican salsa, California Garden whole sweet corn and chopped jalapenos. Mix until combined. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Spread mixture onto 4 of the tortillas and scatter over the cheese. Top with the remaining tortillas to make 4 sandwiches.

Step 4

Wipe the frying pan with kitchen paper and return to the heat or heat another pan. Cook each sandwich for 1-2 minutes on each side until the tortillas are golden and the cheese is melting. Serve warm, cut into wedges, with extra salsa and sour cream.
